Chapter 106: Like A Shrew
I had a bad feeling.There was something wrong with Anthony’s gaze.
Could it be that he had lost his memories? Judging from his attitude towards Caroline, it seemed that he remembered her.
However, he seemed to have forgotten me.
Obviously, this situation worked to Caroline’s favor.
After all, this was the only way she could easily get Anthony.
If my guess was right, then Caroline was a scheming *****.
No wonder Anthony hadn’t responded to any of my calls or texts.
It turned out that he had lost his memories of me.
Fortunately, although Caroline was trying her best to please Anthony, I could see that he didn’t have any special feelings for her.
He might have forgotten about our relationship, but he was still loyal to me.
“Anthony, if I tell you that Caroline is lying and that I am your mate, will you believe me?”
I asked him.I didn’t want to beat around the bush.
I just wanted to expose Caroline’s lie and tell Anthony that I was his mate.
As long as he believed me, it didn’t matter whether he remembered me or not.
I wouldn’t mind starting over with him again if I had to.
A long silence passed, and I waited nervously for his reply.
Anthony regarded me with an inquisitive gaze before looking at Caroline and shaking his head with a sigh.
“I’m sorry.The two of you are saying completely opposite things.I really don’t know who to believe.I think I need to investigate this on my own to find out what the truth is.”
I could sense the helplessness and confusion in Anthony’s voice.
He must have gone through a lot over the past few days to become so cautious.
I couldn’t even imagine how losing one’s memories must be.
I felt sorry for him.
Seeing Anthony’s reaction, Caroline turned to glare at me and warned fiercely, “You’d better shut up.If you continue to spout nonsense, I’ll make you suffer.”
If it weren’t for the fact that we were at a banquet, I would have slapped her.It was her fault that Anthony had lost his memories.
And now, she even dared to act like I was the villain.
“Caroline, if anyone here is spouting nonsense, it’s you.The guilt must be making you feel flustered.How can you accuse the victim in this situation? Do you think I’ll be scared of you? Just wait and see.”
Hearing my curt reply, Caroline fumed in anger and rushed forward to hit me again.
This time, I grabbed her wrist.
“Caroline, what do you think you’re doing? I’m not a pushover.The only reason I didn’t teach you a lesson before is that I care about Mrs.Jones, and since she treats you like her own daughter, I didn’t want to make her sad.But that doesn’t mean that I’ll tolerate you no matter what you do.”
If I found proof that Anthony had lost his memories because of Caroline, I wouldn’t let her go.
“Jennifer.” I heard Daniel calling me.
I roughly released Caroline’s hand, catching her off balance and causing her to stagger a few steps back.
Caroline wanted to take the opportunity to hit me again, but this time, she was stopped by Daniel.
“Miss Wilson, please watch your manners.You shouldn’t take advantage of your status to bully others.”
After chiding Caroline, Daniel looked at me with concern.
“Are you okay?”
I nodded at him.
But Daniel’s face darkened when he saw the red palm print on my face.
Unaware of the situation, he turned to Anthony in surprise and asked, “Mr.Jones, why didn’t you stand up for Jennifer? She’s your mate.How can you let her be bullied like this?” Anthony’s face paled in confusion.
“Who are you? Do you know me too? I have no idea what’s going on right now.I lost my memories recently, and both of these women are claiming to be my mate.I don’t know what to believe.My mind is a mess.”
Daniel’s eyes widened with shock.
“Mr.Jones, let me set things straight for you.I’m your friend.I have personally seen the love that you and Jennifer have for each other.You two are destined to be mates.Please don’t believe Caroline’s words.She has always been trying to take Jennifer’s place.Mr.Jones, you have to be careful not to be fooled by her.”
Daniel was defending me against Caroline and even trying to help me win Anthony’s trust.
It was fortunate that I had such a great, loyal group of friends, or I wouldn’t know what to do.
Perhaps it was because of Daniel’s words that Anthony seemed to be convinced.
“I will investigate this matter carefully and give all of you a satisfactory answer.As for you, Jennifer, I’m sorry that you got hurt because of my sister.I hope you can forgive her for her rudeness.”
Hearing Anthony refer to Caroline as his sister calmed me down.
Since that was how he still thought of her, I didn’t have to make a fuss about it anymore.
I looked into his eyes and said solemnly, “Then I will wait for your answer.I believe that Moon Goddess is fair, and that the truth will come out one day.Anthony, I’m leaving now.Take care of yourself.”
I pulled Daniel’s hand and turned around to leave, but it hurt to walk away from my mate like this.
Tonight, I was completely confused by everyone’s words.
As I watched Jennifer walk away, I couldn’t help but catch up with her.
“This is yours,”
I told her, giving the man’s ring back to her.
She looked at it in stunned silence for a moment before gently pushing it back to me.
“This is your ring, and you gave me for safekeeping.You should keep it.It’s yours.”
Standing in front of her, I slid the ring onto my finger with doubt.
To my surprise, the ring was a perfect fit for my finger.
It seemed that Jennifer might be telling the truth, but in that case, what about Caroline? Did she lie to me?
“Can we make an appointment to meet again? I want to ask you some questions,” I said.
For the first time that night, Jennifer smiled.
“I’ll contact you later.”
Then, she took back the ring and left with Daniel.
She was elegant and unrestrained in the way she spoke and carried herself.
Looking at her receding back, I felt a sense of loss.
I indeed found her familiar.
Contrary to the unwillingness I felt when Caroline told me that she was my fiancee, I felt trusting of Jennifer.
Whenever she was close to me, she was easily able to affect my mood.
Just as I was pondering over this, Caroline came up to me and sneered, “That girl must be a fraud.She has been scheming for a long time to attract your attention, trying to trick you into trusting her.She just covets the position of your wife.It’s a clumsy lie.Anthony, don’t believe her.”
“Caroline, don’t badmouth others like this,”
I said sharply.
For some reason, I didn’t want to hear anyone insulting Jennifer this way.
Caroline looked at me with indignation and burst into tears.
“We have known each other since childhood.Do you think I’d lie to you?”
I was a little annoyed by her ticky-tacky words, so I moved her hand away from my arm.
“Caroline, don’t think I’m a fool.I can come to my own judgment.
Don’t try to interfere with it.
Even if I’ve lost my memories, I can tell right from wrong.
Today, you went too far.
As a member of the royal family, how could you beat others like a shrew?”
“I only did it because she was trying to seduce you! ”
Caroline cried, once again putting all the blame on Jennifer.
I didn’t want to listen to her unreasonable words anymore, so I went back into the banquet hall alone, leaving Caroline shouting and chasing behind.
Since when had she become so annoying?
